I couldn't disagree more. One of the values of 401k investing is dollar cost averaging, which means consistently putting money into your investments regardless of market conditions. Outside of the occasional (annual at most) rebalancing, I would caution against market timing 401k investments based on something that may or may not happen.

This sounds rigid and overly theoretical. How much is the downside of converting to cash for a couple of weeks because it's not strict DCA? OP s not trying to time the market over years or even months.
